Watch Dogs: Legion launching on October 29th
Ubisoft today announced an October 29th release date for Watch Dogs: Legion and introduced a few of the potential stars in new videos. Legion hops over the proverbial pond to focus on DedSec operatives in London fighting The Man by hacking the oeuvre of David Mamet [the planet -rhyming slang ed.], and this time we can play all sorts of different people by recruiting NPCs around the world. Come meet some of them.

Each NPC has different abilities, equipment, and access reflecting their archetypal backgrounds, from builders and drone experts to assassins and even undercover enemy employees.
